Maddie imo

Not to be confused with Maddie a Season 5 character.

Maddie is the name for the mother/son relationship of Marissa Benson and Freddie Benson (Fre/ddie + Ma/rissa). It can also be called Farissa (F/reddie + M/arissa). Marissa is very overprotective and overbearing towards her son, which can drive him crazy, and once to the point of which he moved out of their apartment (iMove Out). However, Freddie is very fond of his mother and seems to enjoy her motherly ways in some situations.

This article is strictly to discuss the mother/son relationship of Marissa and Freddie, not a romantic pairing of them.

  • Once Marissa agrees to accompany the children and Spencer to Japan, she poi
    Marissa igtj


    nts out that she will have to make a lot of preparations for the trip, including purchasing a voltage converter for Freddie's nightlite. Although Freddie protests in front of the girls that he doesn't use a nightlite anymore, he asks his mother in the hallway if she's sure his nightlite will work in Japan.
  • Marissa chases Freddie into Spencer and Carly's apartment with a medical cart full of vaccines. Nursing his sore arm, Freddie pleads with Marissa to stop giving him needles, as he's already received eleven. Marissa blithely tells him she's half-way done.
  • Marissa compromises and tells Freddie that he only needs one more shot, but this vaccine doesn't go in his arm.

    Maddie ipie
    baby does hate you." Although Marissa's comment is undeniably insensitive, she was probably just trying, in her awkward way, to show Freddie some sympathy. It might mean that Marissa didn't believe it when Freddie told her Stephanie hated him, possibly because she can't see how someone could not like Freddie.
  • Marissa has been trying to get baby Stephanie to sleep for three hours, but she won't stop giggling. Marissa then brings the baby over to the iCarly studio and asks Freddie to show her his face so she'll stop laughing. Rising above his hurt feelings, Freddie says, "Sure" somewhat dejectedly. He then leans over into the baby buggy to show Stephanie his apparently unfunny mug.
